In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Barrow Lion

Barrow Lion

also traded as Red Lion

Closed between 1958 and 1981?.

Lion Green

grid reference TL 765 634

The Red Lion is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century (larger map). It isn't entirely clear which building was actually the pub - could it in fact have been the smaller building to the rear rather than the one facing the green?

pub on old OS map

The pub is shown on the 1958 OS map, but not on the 1981 sheet, so presumably closed some time in between.
